What's the Point ...Really??
I am creating a communication brand of sorts with the concept of using the term: ...Really?? (3 periods, 2 question marks). In business and my personal life, I find myself often scratching my head asking...Really??
It started with an article I dubbed ...Really?? In this article, I shared some of the frustrations I've had dealing with suppliers as a flurry of business opportunities came my way. This was one of the most opened FreePromoTips.com e-newsletters we have had since we started our popular industry resource program back in 2005.
Based on the feedback we received, clearly that article hit an industry nerve. This conversation on effective business communication will be continued with input from suppliers and feedback from multi-line reps. Three great companies will be contributing to the supplier side of the story; Warwick, Southern Plus and Evans. Understanding how we can best work together will benefit everyone.
Communication skills are critical in our personal and professional lives. To further address this topic, award-winning Toastmaster, Maurice DiMino, the Sicilian Mentor, will be presenting a free SuccessTracks Learning Experience on Communicating Your Message, Wednesday April 24th at 10:00 a.m. PST. Information and the registration link can be found here.
Good business is "Really" about good relationships and effective communication. These elements come together perfectly through involvement in our Regional Associations. Some of you might think, what's the point of being involved with a Regional Association...Really?? I'm busy, why do I need to leave my office for these Association events? How does this benefit ME? That's a good question and we will touch on the answer.
While talking with my friend Rhonda Blum, who is very active in SAAGNY (Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York), the counterpart to my own Regional Association SAAC, here in California, she mentioned Peter Farman's story. Peter is an active member of SAAGNY and former Board Member. In compiling content on this topic, I really couldn't add anything to what he shared, so we invite you to read his take on Association involvement.
